Brooklyn Tech defeated Jefferson High School 22-16 this past Saturday in a close contest similar to the last five games between the historic Brooklyn rivals.
Jefferson ran back the opening kickoff for a touchdown, but Tech stuck with a powerful run game in which Amani Murphy, Jr. ran for 184 yards on 26 carries. Jefferson scored a field goal late in the fourth quarter that could have ended the game, but Tech stormed back with a 40 yard completion from Minju Kim to Maxim Nelich that led to an Amani Murphy touchdown. Interceptions by Murphy and Captain John Hemminger sealed the victory for Tech.
Captain Mahmoud Shabana had 5 tackles for the defense. William Avery and Robert Deokinandin (Game Captain) contributed late game quarterback pressure that led to the interceptions.
Brooklyn Tech will travel to Port Richmond this week to take on the Red Raiders. The Junior varsity will open their regular season against Port Richmond on Sunday at home.
Sean Flynn will speak with Robert Deokinandin this week on The Player’s Show.
Coach McKenna will wrap up the Jeff game, go over scores of Tech opponents that played this past weekend and preview the matchup with Port Richmond on this week’s edition of The Coach’s Show.
